Home Made Stamps

This is a creative (and easy!) alternative to buying rubber stamps, which can be expensive and also limited to the designs available. The potential for these is limited only by your imagination and the amount of bottle tops you can collect!

All you need is:

  • Foam scraps (ours were off cuts from foam stickers so already had sticky backing, but if yours don't just use white glue)
  • Scissors
  • Bottle tops
  • Paint
Originally i had planned to just buy foam stickers to make this even easier, but after searching for a few weeks i couldn't find any small enough to fit the bottle tops i'd saved. Then i found the foam sticker scraps at the craft shop for $3 a bag! Bargain!

All you do is cut out shapes from the foam to fit the size of the bottle tops, stick it on, and stamp away!

I also decided to buy a washable paint stamp pad from the craft shop for $4 to make this activity potentially less messy. However, once Bean gets the hang of it I'll just use poster paint on a plate for more color variation :-)
